The bible seems to dislike anything that people like.

The fact a virgin gave birth to the son of God is enough proof to me that it has a negative view of sex. But I do agree that our interpretation, both historically and today, really does affect how we view the Abrahamic religions.

Please check out my article which is exactly about this Sex & Religion: The Beautiful and the Damned.

My opinion is that the Bible is unclear and varied in its view about sex (it is clear about some things) and religion is what presents a negative view. I see the Bible and religion as two separate things.

Mixed.

I think some interpretations have it so sex is good when it is procreative, and that god said we should be "fruitful" and "multiply on the earth" or something. So unless "artificial insemination" or other methods existed, I think they were okay with that, and probably might have gotten mad at women who didn't want to have sex with their husbands.

But also negative because it says no prostitution, adultery, etc.

I think it's in general mixed about sex, and depends on the situation

The Bible gives a positive view on sex between a husband and wife. In fact, mandates it unless there is a mutual agreement for a short period.

Other variations of sex are not viewed positively.

It seems to be fairly negative to me but I'm not religious so what do I know.

The bible is full of inconsistencies and people tend to focus on whatever parts strengthen their opinions.

The Bible has a positive sex message for married husbands and wives. For anything else--negative.

I have a read a lot of the Bible, some passage seem negative, but on a whole, I think it is very postive. But a lot of stuff is taken out of CONTEXT!

Both. It is positive and encouraging within a marriage. Outside of marriage, it is negative.

I would say other, I think it paints a good view of the act itself and says you should please your partner but at the same time it say sex before marriage is a sin.

It gives a negative view if you're not straight and married. I grew up in a religious home, and struggled for a while in my relationship when my partner and I became sexually active.

Over all it gives a negative view on sex and sexuality. It represses and seems to regulate sex to a procreative act only. Sexual pleasure is rarely touched upon. For fear of offending others I'll leave my opinion at that.

I was raised extremely religious. When I got of age to take control of my sexuality, I found it incredibly hard to overcome many of the negative connections I had been taught. I am no longer religious in any stretch of the word, but I do love to study religion.

I do agree that it is up o how it is interpreted. I think that when related to a religious conversation though, sex is often seen as negative more often. I grew up in a less religious house and sex was something that my parents discussed with us as far as safety and protection. I dated someone who's family was super religious and never spoke a word about sex. His 15 year old sister got pregnant because she believed that if the guy pulled out she cannot get pregnant.

The bible actually talks about sex alot. Not as a guide or illustration, but mainly as how men and women should approach sex as a married couple. Many people will say the bible says negative things because of that simple fact.

now, realize many rules then were based upon the abilities of the people at that time (ie don't sleep with a women on her cycle) but others are timeless (men love your wives as Christ loved the church). Or just read song of Solomon...

I think any holy book provides an irrelevant view on sex.
